Fly on the Wall 

Oh Baby

The fliers for Baby Mama Tax Service, which are showing up all over Memphis, promise (in all caps), "IF YOU HAVE KIDS WE GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET A REFUND." Below that, the word "GUARANTEED!!!" is printed a second time. Below that, there's an extremely small asterisk and some super-fine double-guarantee-hedging print that reads, "Must meet income requirements."

There was very little information about Baby Mama Tax Service available online, although a video produced by business growth website Vexxt.com uses the flier as an example of how niche marketing opens up your business, "so you're marketing to somebody versus kinda of marketing to nobody."

A-Game

A deputy constable in Nacogdoches County, Texas, arrested Marty Montell Jones of Memphis after five pounds of marijuana were discovered stuffed into a checkers game and into two boxes of laundry detergent. Duh. Everybody knows you keep your weed in the backgammon box.

Tag Team

Bolivar will get a little more cultured when art teacher Helen Stahl joins forces with her most famous painting-student-turned-professional-wrestling-icon King Jerry Lawler of Memphis for a gallery event The Jackson Sun is calling "one of the more unusual match-ups for an art show in recent West Tennessee history." The reception is scheduled for Feb. 10th at On the Square Gallery and Gifts in Bolivar.

Heavier

ABC-24 reports that life is getting "heavier" for the stars of Heavy Housewives of Memphis, a reality show pilot about plus-sized women who like to party. Some think the as-yet-unproduced show "creates another black eye" for Memphis. But really, it just gives us a few more chins.
